Well.. at least it was the intention! Mom forgot, so had to mix it in after the tomato sauce, meat and bechamel sauce were in the pan. She even had to take the cheese back off! BOL! The green stuff is herbs from our greenhouse (basil, thyme, oregano, parsley).
But it’s not like the sauces don’t mix in the oven anyway, so no biggie. The chilis both smelled and tasted rather fruity (think apple/pear). The flesh wasn’t very hot, but the veins and seeds were. Two chilis, but the seeds of only one half, in this dish made for a little heat, but only barely.
